Cochlear Americas, Centennial, Colo,  has scheduled a workshop titled "Hear The Difference: What Audiologists Need to Know about the Baha Implantable Hearing Solution," on Dec 18 at the Hilton Indianapolis North.

To register for the event, visit the Web site.

Company estimates show that only about 1% of individuals who could benefit from the Baha system currently have it.

The workshop aims to:

  • Raise the awareness of practicing audiologists regarding Baha patient indications so those patients who may benefit from Baha technology are referred to implant centers for evaluation.
  • Educate Baha audiologists on the most current sound processor, the Intenso, and its applications.
  • Ensure those same audiologists are aware of recommended fitting procedures and troubleshooting techniques.
  • Provide information to existing and potential Baha centers about program development and obtaining third-party coverage for their patients who are candidates.
